Two players will be representing the state of Michigan at the 2017 U.S. Women’s National Team Selection Camp later this month, as USA Hockey begins the process of selecting next year’s team.
It’s a big year, of course – the camp will be used to determine the U.S. Women’s National Team roster that will train together and participate in various competitions leading up to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
It’s the usual suspects representing Michigan – Farmington native Megan Keller and Brighton native Shiann Darkangelo.
The camp takes place April 30-May 4 at Florida Hospital Center ice in the Tampa suburb of Wesley Chapel. Players will take part in daily practices, off-ice testing and three intrasquad scrimmages.
USA Hockey will unveil the players selected to the U.S. Women’s National Team at the conclusion of the camp on May 5.
Minnesota leads the way with 10 representatives, while Massachusetts has six. Wisconsin has four and New York has three.
